Frequently Asked Questions About Special Needs Planning

What is a Special Needs Trust?

A Special Needs Trust is a trust designed for a person with a disability. It allows a person to receive a settlement or estate distribution in Trust and remain on government benefits.

Can A Special Needs Person Directly Access the Trust?

The special needs beneficiary cannot directly access the Special Needs Trust funds. The funds can be used to pay vendors directly for services such as personal care attendants, medication, physical therapy, vehicles, transportation, travel, clothing, education, medical or dental bills. This type of trust is an excellent tool to increase a person’s quality of life.

The special needs trust cannot pay for expenses associated with food or shelter including:

  • Groceries
  • Utility Bills
  • Homeowner or renter insurance
